Neutral-Moresnet

One of the ‘advantages’ when you are living abroad is that family and friends relate to the place and send you little stories. One of those came from my granny about Neutral-Moresnet. A small country – or rather stretch of land – created so that Germany (Prussia) and France stopped getting into war about it. 104 years of existence – totally forgotten today.

Considering that some people tried to found the first Esperanto speaking state there, the Wikipedia Esperanto page is astonishingly short. But that can’t be linked, can it?
